UBCFA Member Notice – 2019 Constitution & Bylaws Referendum

At the fall general meeting in 2018, the Faculty Association presented an amended Constitution and Bylaws to the membership. The amendments were driven by legislative changes to the Societies Act and the Association’s responsibility to bring our bylaws into compliance with that Act. The Faculty Association received feedback from members on a handful of issues; the Executive Committee discussed the concerns raised by members and proposed additional changes to the bylaws which were discussed at the UBCFA Fall General Meeting on October 29. More information and the changes can be viewed on our website.

This referendum will take place online beginning at 9:00 a.m. Friday, November 8, 2019 and will end at 4:30 p.m. Friday, November 22, 2019. Members will be receiving an email invitation with instructions on how to vote. You will be directed to the secure voting website and required to enter the password contained in your email invitation as well as your 7-digit UBC Employee ID number. Our electronic voting is conducted through third party voting software to ensure that your vote is anonymous. (Please check your junk email if you do not receive your email invitation)

Thank you.
